#Trust 30…Day 29…Overcoming Uncertainty…Not Able to Trust the Process


Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Write down a major life goal you have yet to achieve or even begin to take action on. For each goal, write down three uncertainties (read: fears) you have relating to each goal. Break it down further, and write down three reasons for each uncertainty. When you have three reasons for your fear, you’ll be able to start processing the change because you know where the fear stems from. Now you’ll be able to make a smaller changes that push you towards your larger goal. So begins the process of “trusting yourself.”

Yet to achieve: To be a published novelist

Not able to find the time

a. I get distracted with so many things, other commitments

b. I have to live/earn a living

c. Get exhausted at the thought of a rewrite

Too big a task

a.I hate rewriting and rewriting

b. So time consuming

c. Its crap anyway, no one will want to read it.

Hate to apply to publishers

a. Fear of rejection

b. Fear of rejection

c. So much time this will take, and for what? Rejection.

The tiny sliver f hope here is the mule in me. It might just push me past the finishing line if I don’t listen to the voice of reason. It does not work with the mule, the mule has no ear for it. Thank god for stubbornness, then.

    I like: “the tiny sliver of hope here is the mule in me.” That’s it for many of us.

  2. Abha: I have found need in the past to “fall in love” with the process of writing and not make it do anything. The funny thing is that the more I embrace that, the easier the writing flows and the more is achieved. It also feels so much better.

    Just my sharing. Whatever works for each, is what works. I hope you find your joy in it.

    Namaste.
